The Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery
The book The Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery examines the impact that software and massive amounts of distributed data have had on the sciences. Collaboration using new Web 2.0 tools is facilitating entirely new forms of research depending heavily on how well its researchers collaborate with one another, and with technologists, in areas of eScience such as databases, workflow management, visualization, and cloud computing technologies.

4.7 Summary

Human activity has been responsible for some extinctions and othe deleterious changes to habitats. These changes have not always been the result of thoughtless or selfish behaviour; often intentions were worthy, but outcomes were not as predicted. The importance of genetic diversith is demonstrated here in relation to Dutch Elm disease. The need to retain genetic diversity in plants, used for food and medicine, is recognized in such initiatives as the Kew Milennium Seed Bank Appeal.

5.2 Material comparisons

I want to depart from the specific example of the bicycle to make some more general points.

In most simple structural analysis the self-weight of the structure is ignored, as it is considered to be small in comparison with the loads carried. However, as an illustration of engineering practice in the search for efficient structures to employ in product design, it is worth examining how the strength and weight of particular materials compare.

These comparisons are illustrated throug

Réduction de la mortalité maternelle - Dakar 2010 : Introduction au colloque. (audio)

Le président de séance rappelle que ce colloque est un moment de réflexion pour confronter les approches et harmoniser le langage. La sexualité humaine est un objet social complexe qui, dans toutes les sociétés du monde, articule le langage, les affects et la physiologie.

La sexualité humaine, à la différence de la sexualité animale, dépasse la fonction de reproduction. Nous sommes des êtres de langage et de société. Le terme même de "reproduction" est trop

3.4 Experiencing multiple sclerosis: a case illustration

The idea of a body–world interconnection and distinction between objective and subjective body is explored further in the following extract, drawn from some phenomenological research Linda Finlay conducted on one person's (Ann's) lived bodily experience of having MS (Finlay, 2003). In the extract, the focus is on the process by which Finlay came to analyse what Ann's body feels like subjectively. Her story – obtained via an in-depth interview (see Box below) – emphasises the way her sen

3.3 A body–world interconnection

Our consciousness of our bodies remains fundamentally tied up with our everyday embodied activities and relationships. The body thus represents both our particular view of the world as well as our Being-in-the-world (Heidegger, 1962 [1927]). Martin Heidegger (2001) draws a distinction between corporeal things and the body, questioning whether the sense of embodied selfhood that we all possess needs to coincide with the limits of a corporeal body. The corporeal thing stops

3.3 Conclusions

The main points made in this reading have been:

  1. Groups cannot be understood simply in terms of the interactions between individual members because:

    • individuals have contracts with the group as a whole and this is distinct from their relationships with other members of the group on a one-to-one basis;

    • people behave differently in groups;

    • there are simply too many possible inte

6.2 Number of neurons hypothesis

In addition to an increase in firing rate of neurons with differing dynamic ranges, the inclusion of discharges from many fibres whose CFs are different from those of the stimulus may also help to account for the wide dynamic range of the ear. You know from Section 3.3 that in response to a pure tone stimulus the basilar membrane vibrates maximally at a g

1.1.2 The carbon footprint boundary

Depending on where you draw the boundary, the carbon footprint can apply to an individual person, a household, an organisation or event, a product, a city, region or country, or the whole world. I'll mainly be considering the footprints of individuals, households and the countries they occupy.

But even then the boundary needs to be defined carefully. Sometimes the carbon footprint is taken to mean the individual's or household's direct CO2 emissions, main
